CTM Altromercato Organic Chia Seeds 200g
Prized for centuries for their properties, these small seeds of a tropical plant, the Salvia Hispanica, formed the basis of the ancient pre-Inca population of Central and South America. These Chia seeds, witnesses of a millennial gastronomic tradition, are still cultivated exclusively in uncontaminated areas between 1800 and 2800 m, on the feet of the Andes Cordillera, south of Peru. 
CTM Altromercato Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are cultivated by organic farming, high in omega-3 fatty acids,  phosphorus and fiber. Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are source of Omega 3 fatty acids (ALA-alpha-linolenic acid) that contribute to maintaining good levels of normal cholesterol in the blood.
The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2g of ALA, therefore with 10g of chia seeds you will fulfill your daily needs of Omega3. Moreover the high content of phosphorus contributes to normal energy metabolism.  We recommend to take CTM Altromercato Organic Chia seeds together with CTM AltromercatoOrganic Baobab (link to baobab page), to provide a good source of Calcium and Vitamin C for the body.
